How Embedding Nvidia GPUs Helps Virtual Desktop Environments

How Technology is Evolving for Better Educational Experiences

As generations go by, technology also evolves. In no other sector is this more apparent, than higher education. There is an increasing demand by students to have more flexible access to their learning resources. This is driving change among higher education institutions, to provide outstanding educational experiences to students and staff, regardless of where and when they choose to work or learn.


Why Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) is a Huge Plus for Education?

More and more higher education institutions are choosing to adopt digital technologies to meet the demands of their students and staff, while also remaining competitive. One technology that is making significant gains in the education sector is Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS).

Brief Introduction to DaaS Technology

DaaS is a technology that separates the workplace from the physical client, and the device being used to access it. All of the desktop software and applications are hosted in the cloud, and the desktop is accessible from any device with an internet connection, regardless of its type or operating system (OS) used.


Why Virtual Desktops Need Extensive Graphics Processing?

The extensive graphics processing capabilities required by latest applications and operating systems are resulting in a sub-par user experience in virtual desktops. Lag from the high processing needs of these graphically intensive workloads and programs results in a slow and frustrating user experience, which is affecting the adoption of the solution internally.

How ATSG is Fulfilling the Graphics Need in Virtual Desktop Environments?

ATSG solves this challenge by utilizing nVIDIA GPU cards in its virtual desktops. nVIDIA GPU accelerators deliver highly immersive virtual workspaces for every user. Mobile educators and students can finally enjoy a premium virtual desktop experience, that is developed specifically to handle the increased graphics processing needs of Windows 10, and other office as well as creativity suites, delivering performance that is even superior to that of a physical PC, in some cases.
